Book Publishing!


Each week, I receive a book marketing tip by email from John Kremer.

This one amazes me.  It looks like you can publish an ebook as easily as can be.

Publishing Kindle ebooks is easier than you might think (if you haven't done it yet). Just go to http://dtp.amazon.com and start publishing. Click on the Kindle Publishing Guide link under Getting Started to get going.

Below are four quotation books I've published so far as Kindle ebooks. All are priced at $2.99.

The Art of Living: Quotations from Artists, Photographers, Architects, Designers, Cartoonists, Poets, Writers, Novelists, and Critics on Art and Life: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00413PXZE

The Business of Life: Business people and others on life, business, careers, the workplace, investments, economics, jobs, money, and more: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00413PYVW

How to Act: Advice on How to Live and Act from Actors, Models, Comedians, Directors, Producers, Playwrights, and Screenwriters: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00413PXUE

The Big Bad Book of Blonde Jokes: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00413PY2Q

Using Amazon's upload engine for transferring Word documents into Kindle editions is really easy to do. Just sign up and fill out the form. But note: Amazon's transformation engine doesn't always create a perfect ebook. While the first three books look pretty good as ebooks, the blonde joke book has a few glitches. I'll have to upload a new file sometime soon to correct the minor defects.
